Psalms 85:3-4 (KJV) A Position, A Prayer and A Purpose

Psalms 85:3-4 (KJV)
Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
There is in this Psalm:
A position, what God has doneVs 1-3
A prayer, what God is doingVs 4-7
A purpose, the reason for which He is doing itVs 8-13
Positionally God’s people are:
  • forgiven, 
  • cleansed and 
  • seated together 
with Christ in heavenly places.
We are justified.
Experientially we are all too aware of our own failing and sin.
Though God has pronounced us to be clean we are keenly aware that it is not so. We plead for Him to:
  • turn us, 
  • revive us and 
  • be merciful to us 
because we know we need it.
We are being sanctified.
Practically we know that justification and sanctification are:
  • possible, 
  • effectual and 
  • actual 
because “mercy and truth are met together” in the person of Jesus Christ.
We have a Saviour.
